, the numbers are not working in the direction of romney and i'm surprised that they not shifting at all. they continue working the base, working the base to interview with mitt romney. mitt romney is saying we have -- ambulance will come and take to you emergency room hospital. romney an expert in health care policy. he reformed health care in the stays of massachusetts. he is not ignorant. he is talking to his base. so far i don't think it's working. >> i want to you make the argument -- . [ multiple speakers ] -- back to the girls with guns. is that an argument for the women's vote. >> i don't think it's a real issue for women so much. but you know, i'm a farm and ranch girl and a grew up in a family that did hunt and i had a gun when i was in my single-digits back in the day and was taught how to shoot and taught about how to treat a gun and how to respect and things like that. i think that's important. and i think it's an important place our culture we have these different activities that take place. so -- >> i was going to say, you have to kind of divvy up the goods. of course thos
. two, ohio has always been a swing state and number three, in order for mitt romney to do better he has to be here more. the situation is we are doing better here. we went from 89 cents rainy day fund to loss of 400,000 jobs to up 123, so people are feeling better here, but we have the wind in our face. you know the uncertainty of threatened tax increases and big debt hanging over our head. if i want the wind at my back, mitt romney has to be elected president because the uncertainty is paralyzing businesses. >> paul: but should mitt romney associate himself with policies of successful republican governors with lower unemployment than the national average. i haven't her him do that. >> siechb him do it. i've been with him a number of times -- he can the policies we have pursued out here is not much different than what i saw ronald reagan do. we balanced the budget. we reduced taxes and reduced marginal rights on taxes. we have a our regulatory environment under control but they are not duplicative. those are the things we need to get america moving again. that is what romney talks about
a memorable debate moment carries a candidate only so far. the live tv audience for the first obama-romney debate is expected to be about 60 million people. that's roughly half the number expected to vote in the election. the combination of shrinking finances and rising crime is forcing drastic change on camden, new jersey, a small city just across the delaware from philadelphia. tony guida has the details of a reorganization plan that would take veteran cops off the beat permanently. >> reporter: if camden had its own postcards, the picture would look look a lot like this-- police responding to the scene of a crime. with just 77,000 residents and 1500 violent crimes and 48 murders this year alone, camden has been called one of the most dangerous cities in america. now, in an unprecedented move, the hard-pressed city is planning to fire its police department. >> our hope is to start something that makes sense, to start to diminish crime in a way that people say, "oh, wait a minute. it's not the same old camden." >> reporter: ian leonard says what camden needs is more police on the street.
that you two you and romney are trailing in the polls especially in the swing states. a growing number of republicans that say romney needs a clear are victory on wednesday or else the donor support will start to dry up and so will the grass roots support. >> first of all, the polls are close. this is going be a close race. second of all i don't think. >> chris: but you are trailing. >> we are running against an incumbent president with incredible resources. more importantly i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> chris: there were 23 debates during the primarys. >> people are going to see who is mitt romney and what kind of president is he going to be and what are the choices i have. that is what matters in this particular debate and all of the debates which is i know what president obama has done and all of the empty promises and broken pr
, mitt romney has a point. that gdp number shows a very weak economy. americans are feeling better about the economy despite the fact we have hard numbers that show the economy is not doing well. what's going on? >> so the consumer confidence is taken from the third quarter, right? that was the second quarter. we know in the second quarter we had a drought, and that drought was something that suppressed economic activity and we also knew that drought was temporary and could be overcome. the question is, are people feeling better as we get close to the election because the economy isn't -- >> you're saying it's enough. >> it's a rearview mirror indicator, and now people are looking guarforward. you look at the polls over and over and a majority of people say feels bad now, i think it's going to be better next year. you're starting to get a little optimism, and that's because this was an emergency for four years. now bad things about the economy have become chronic, not emergency anymore. people in a weird way are getting used to the fact they have to lower their expectations. i keep sayin
. independents are very pro romney and i think you're going to see the numbers -- >> where are these pro romney independents you just mentioned? >> if you look at the independent numbers, there will be new polls coming out. keep an eye on independents, when the reality of 23 million people looking for jobs, i don't think they want for mour years of 23 million people looking for jobs when we've had four years to turn this around. and it hasn't happened. and i think, i think when it comes time to choose 36 days is a lifetime in politics, we still have debates, it will be a jump ball to the very end. i wouldn't want to be president obama, who has to explain to the american people on wednesday night, why the, why the unemployment rate is stuck at 8.1%. >> you mentioned undecided, independent voters, i think you and i both know it's 63 people left in america right now. but good luck to you, thank you so much for your time on this sunday afternoon, ann marie. >>> thank you. >>> up next, we fast forward. what if president obama does indeed win? what happens then? >>> then later the supreme court back
reason? >> i feel fairly certain that we will not hear romney conflate the number of people who are bound to vote for obama, the number of people who do not pay federal income tax, and the number of people who receive some sort of federal benefit, that that is all the same 47%. i doubt we will hear that again. >> anybody want to disagree? >> probably not. i do not know if that -- it was for consumption by a very small public. those with big wallets. >> that gives you an important aspect of our fact checking. we focus on the big, national messages, but we know there is lots of micro-targeting going on that is using very precise media to hit very precise audiences. we are not seeing that. we try, we asked readers to submit ideas through facebook and e-mail and what ever. we get a tiny portion of that. i think the case in point, this mailing i got from the romney campaign, maybe that is not going to be a message we hear romney assert at the debate, but it is clearly won the campaign is continuing to make. talk to campaign people, they will tell you, hey, you do not know about the ads you did
in place. >> chris: a number of top republicans say when romney picked you as his running mate a little over a month ago they thought that this indicated you guys were going to run a bold reform agenda campaign. and, they are now expressing frustration that, instead of you changing romney, you have heard this, they've feel that romney is changing you, and you are running a much more cautious campaign, and, even your own good friend and wisconsin home state governor, scott walker, has gone on the radio to complain about this. >> i feel, the passion that paul has, transfer overo the nominee and i think, a little bit -- a little bit of push back from the folks in the national campaign. >> chris: he says he doesn't see passion, he doesn't see reform, he doesn't see fire in the belly. >> scott is a good buddy of mine and has been a good backer of mine, come out to me with mitt and myself to ohio, to iowa, to north carolina, to virginia, to florida. attend our town hall meetings. we were walking people through how we fix medicare and social security and create jobs and reform the tax code and
this week for a record number of americans the election is already done. with 32 states allowing early voting with few restrictions why are they seeing so few mitt romney commercials? to the rest looking foolish? why are they holding their fire? in 2008 more than one-third of knowledgeable iowans have voted by a 2% and 30% from ohio them by the 18th 61 1/4 carolina nearly 80% of colorado by then the election was done. it was over. think about what was going on. in the early stages of the financial free-fall the market was still searing and panic and rage not a good time to be the incumbent party or four john mccain to be saving resources and campaign media blitz. especially more than one-third of fort -- voters could not be moved with the illicit -- less sens barack obama got imploring ohio voters to take advantage of early boating he is not stupid but seizing the moment that is why we question they could blow the moment of the shane paul ryan is one thing when he first unleashes him here to what switches smart but it is still piling up voters in record numbers continue to pile up thei
are going be somewhere around that national number. what i think that romney -- what happened to romney campaign, i think political malpractice. they left the playing field to the entire obama campaign. they allowed them to outspend them in the summer. and basically set the tone for the final 60 days of this campaign. which puts them behind after the convention. now, they're behind in the prism of which voters view this is negative for mitt romney. >>> i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, it look at how it opens up in that last week and a half that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. this campaign is all about process, it's about polling, campaign management. it's about everything but the issues. it's about everything but obama policies. how does that turn that around? >> stay totally focused on the fact for most americans, you can't tell the difference between the recession and the recovery. in fact, since this data came out this last month, the average american family lost $
told you that mitt romney had to pay taxes for x number of years would it make you more or less likely to vote for him? some people move or tell you that they would move. people telling you that they would move is a pretty sort of conjectural thing. i would not cognitively trust anybody who told you what they would do under a hypothetical scenario if they learned a permission. they may or may not already know and that is part of the polls that they asked people if you knew, you may or may not already know so in focus groups you bring somebody in and you have a dozen people and you show them and add an asked them again if they would change their mind and now you are prompting somebody to change their mind and they are being forced to watch an ad that they might otherwise tune out. so using these experimented form programs at the obama campaign has introduces them into the real world so they randomly assigned the mail randomly to the electorate or randomly assign tv ads to certain markets and then because there polling across those markets they can see who moved based on which message or
with medicare. what do you make of the numbers, did mitt romney make too much baggage on this critical issue when he selected paul ryan? >> part of that is more exposure being brought to what's going on here? there's so many ryan plans and originally he did get -- it sort of evolved until he gets closer and closer as he gets more and more defensive here, he is in part ryan what's going on in florida. overall, the third rail doesn't exist anymore. what happened is there was just a reduceded or delayed effect of the electricity and i think they're now getting the jolt. >> rita, i don't want to get ahead of ourselves here, but one of our articles is-what are your thoughts on that? >> at the moment, the fact that mitt romney is behind in all these swing states, conservatives is blaming the media, they're blaming pollsters, they're blaming everybody but the candidate himself, if he were to lose, believe me that blame will shift. a lot of conservatives will say, well, we knew he wasn't a conservative enough. remember the severely conservative right. once they focus their blame on the candidate him
romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal with the actually deficit. when pressed for details, he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't actually propose anything practical because that would talk about legalizing in some form the 12 million illegal immigrants in this country and that would trigger internal revolt in the republican party. so as a deficit, romney has a plan but it's a secret. the republican party has imposed a new kind of political correctness on their leaders. they cannot speak certain words, taxes, speculate about certain ideas, a path to citizenship, because these are forbidden. romney has tried to run a campaign while not running afoul of his party's strictures. as for himself he's twiste
against john mccain and some others, and doing his level best to get under romney's skin and romney's just about what a tough debater portman is, on a number of cases, it's been portman's responsibility to try to irritate mitt romney or trip him up on the issues and he's played an important role on this and this debate is six segments, 15 minutes long east and the first three are about the economy and the fourth is obama care and health care reform. the fourth is on governoring and the 5th is role of government. all of these things will dominate the discussion, but romney is planning after this coming debate on wednesday, before the policy speech on the week before the vice-president debates, the attempts by the romney ryan campaign, to go beyond the economy and try to do the whole campaign contrast in the last four years. >> an exciting time for all the americans who said now, carl, they'll tune in more, leading up to the debate. thank you, campaign carl, good to see you. moving on now to president obama and his visit in the swing state of nevada tonight. the president arrives in las vega
made a large number of changes. what really needs to happen is congress needs to happen. >> last week governor romney said that lenders have been tight on the lending standards largely because some of the key dodd/frank rules have not been completed. we're still waiting for finality and some of these rules. do you agree with that analysis? >> i am not sure who he is talking to. i talked to lenders all the time. these are rules. they do not apply. i am not hearing that the uncertainty as we are finalizing these rules, and the requirement in the law was to finish them by january of next year, and we are scheduled to finish the qualified mortgage and some of the servicing rules. i am not hearing that is a significant barrier. the real issues that have held back credit. we have been through the most significant crisis since the great depression. it is one of the reasons why it is so important that fha has made credit available. i think there are a number of issues that are much more significant that we have to solve in order to get more credit flowing. i do agree that there are people out
's a five-point race, which it roughly is, is when you look at this, the national number is 5 or 6. all of the target states are going to be somewhere around that national number. all of those states will flow with that. what i think that romney -- what happened to romney campaign, i think political malpractice. for the summer and a big part of the convention time, they left the playing field to the entire obama campaign. they allowed them to outspend them in the summer. they allowed them during the conventions to outspend them. and basically set the tone for the final 60 days of this campaign. which puts them behind after the convention. i don't think the romney folks expected to be behind and now they're behind in the prism of which voters view this is negative for mitt romney. >> governor barbour, i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, look at how it opens up in that last week and a half, that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. the biggest thing that's damaging mitt romney,
been set low but i believe the country deserves a much brighter path. what we'll hear governor romney is reducing the outrageous growth and spending and frankly rolling back the regulatory price tag that this economy has been absorbing. you see an increase of about 279% in the number of major versus the bush. each of a price tag hundred million dollars a year. >> heather: i want to give you a chance to respond. president obama he is the incumbent president in this race. let's take a look at economic numbers. since president obama took office in january of 2009 the u.s. government has implemented more fiscal stimulus and monetary intervention than ever before. g.d.p. has slowed from 2.4% to 12% in 2011 and only 1.6% in first half of 2012. first three that recovery has added 6.7% to g.d.p. and unemployment stuck above 8% and as you heard nancy, 25% of americans age 25-55 still need a job. so why do president obama deserve another four years? >> it's clear heather in this debate it's going to be critical for the president to make the case that while we are moving forward there is still a

the fundamental problem isn't that people don't like him, it's that people think romney doesn't like them. that comes from the 47% tape. it comes from a number of other incidents. so in this debate he has somehow or other got to make people sense he feels and understands what they're going through. and that can't be by telling his life story. that has to be by relating to them in a way that seems authentic. so far he hasn't been able to do that but he has been practicing and very well may. >> schieffer: thanks to all three of you. very enlightening, and we'll be right back. ♪ it means cleaner, cheaper american-made energy. but we've got to be careful how we get it. design the wells to be safe. thousands of jobs. use the most advanced technology to protect our water. billions in the economy. at chevron, if we can't do it right, we won't do it at all. we've got to think long term. we've got to think long term. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time?

for barack obama and twice as many as the number that will vote for mitt romney. that means most people do not feel represented by either of these candidates or parties that have such a track record of serving the 1%. the wealthy few whose fortunes have skyrocketed while everyday americans are being thrown under the bus by the day. . . reduce us our debt, it does not increase t. that we can downsize the military, bring our troops and more dollars home, that we can bail out the students, instead of bailing out the banks. the fed just announced it's undertaken another quantitative easing. this is the third quantitative easing. this is trillions of dollars that they are pouring into wall street, simply to bail them out, when the banks continue to get too big to fail and bigger all the time, and too big to jail. the public does not like this. they want jobs. they want public higher education which is affordable. they want health care as a human right, they won't to downsize the military and bring the troops home. so the system is designed to lock us out and to make us run through all kinds of
that romney originally passed on veftding in staples after getting misstated numbers from those -- you should know when you vote six weeks from now, that some politicians asking for your vote considered this a transactional exchange. if you want to just contact the person who is supposed to represent everyone in their district, some of them want you to give them money first. one of the republicans is congressman todd akin running against claire mccaskill. here's his recommendation for how constituents can reach him. >> sounds self-serving. but you go out and somebody is working on a campaign and you find out that -- [ inaudible ] some people say yes, they write me a decent check and then oh, i remember that. >>> write me a decent, check, oh, i remember that. fact check, they do remember that. you should know the first presidential debate of 2012 is this wednesday night. i hope you'll watch me and the msnbc team as we bring you special coverage anchored by rachel maddow. what appears to be the first time the republican and democratic parties commission on presidential debates has told the cand
is in a bad state. what they need to know is how it's going to improve. now, unfortunately for governor romney, he goes into the debate with republican pollsters saying that the right track, wrong track numbers have changed dramatically in some of those swing states. a majority still think that the country is on the wrong track but it's a much smaller majority. >> interestingly, governor, you've been thinking about questions, domestic policy, infrastructure, something you have worked a lot on. what would you ask? >> i would ask how are we going to fix our infrastructure, which is in literally falling apart. and invest in it. at the same time we have to worry about the debt. and i think it's a key question. and simpson-bowles said it right. we have to continue to invest in america as we're getting rid of the deficit. >> so little appetite to do that. >> but we have to create that appetite. that has to come from leadership. >> chuck, talk about the president's style. we went back and got a clip from 2008 in one of the debates with senator mccain. what was notable was president obama perhaps like
needed to at the convention, that i think is job number one, more than making a case against the president. >> when you talk about making a case for himself, for romney, it would seem like health care might be a hallmark in which to do so, he talks about bringing universal health care, but on the other hand revealing all or parts of the president's plan, he's really kind of between on what to do about health care, does he tout it? it was an accomplishment for him or does he downplay it because he wants to criticize the president? >> health care reform, which, you know, structurally is very similar to what president obama passed at the national level, was romney's hallmark achievement in massachusetts? it was something he could not embrace in the republican primary. that were really kind of splitting hairs. and now, in the general election, he he is kind of sending mixed signals, at times he has embraced certain aspects or goals, or overall, but regardless of the messaging or the signaling, mitt romney has pledged to repeal president obama's health care reform, that policy dec
